Rocky View Schools has made the decision to cancel Bow Valley Highs' school trip to Cambodia set for early April due to COVID-19.
Superintendent Luterbach penned a letter to parents and guardians on Wednesday, March 10. In the letter Luterbach said, "While we support the educational value of international travel, at the forefront of this decision was the safety of our students and our staff. We acknowledge the challenges that may arise as a result of this decision and will work with the school community to minimize the impact on students and their families."
Thus far, no school trips planned within North America have been cancelled. However, the constantly changing circumstances will ultimately influence future decisions.
RVS will remain diligent in monitoring the situation.
